A Taste of Asia

Senior Airman Ridge Shan
Luke AFB, Ariz.

The month of May is Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage month. To celebrate those cultures and the service of the many Asian-American and Pacific Islander Airmen both at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz., and abroad, the AAPIH Group at Luke hosted a luncheon at the base chapel featuring several dozen unique and tasty food items from various countries throughout the Asia and Pacific region on May 2, 2017. The food selection allowed both culinary veterans and newbies to the Eastern/Pacific taste range to experience something new, and provided a place for Airmen to gather, mingle, and immerse themselves for a short time in a small part of international culture.
 

The Taste of Asia lunch kicked off Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage month in the month of May for Luke and allowed Airmen from across the base to experience a culinary sample of Asian and Pacific culture.
